Georgette Kanach of Gray, Maine. I am an artist who creates masterpieces that embody the natural beauty of my great state of Maine. Born and raised in Jackman, Maine, I am a self taught artist, with over 60 years of experience. My lifelong love of nature is truly demonstrated in all my many works of art.
My artwork spans from two-dimensional paintings to relief carving, air brushing, jewelry making, model painting, scrimshaw, engraving, egg art, wood burning, hand painted signs as well as vinyl signs and glass sand blasting . I work with natural mediums such as wood, antler, feathers and eggs as well as glass, metal, and automobiles, not to mention conventional paintings in oils and acrylics. My hand-carved wood railings and mantelpiece are a specialty that adorn many beautiful homes and camps along with wildlife wood burned coffee tables and signs.
I have been honored with numerous ribbons for my Egg and Wood relief carvings. Winning first place in the State of Maine Duck Stamp contest in 2009 has opened many doors and further opportunities as well as Ruffed Grouse Society Artist of the year with my painting "Autumn Delight". I designed the Maine Veterans Plaque and Coin in 2018. My achievement as Master Maine Guide was truly inspired by my desire to share my love of nature.
I now work in my studio in Gray, Maine where I enjoy creating one of a kind pieces. I sell my art out of my Gallery. Diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009 and undergoing surgery and treatments has given me a new meaning to life and all of it's wonders: "Life is good, so enjoy and treasure every moment of it".
"I always remember loving Art and Nature; it is a great gift that was given to me, and so by combining two loves of my life I am able to share them both in the art that I produce. I do what I love and love what I do."
